This Ep is the second release of this Chilean one man formed by Andrés Rojas (aka Üdenentun) in 2004… Some of you will probably remember Úden’s previous effort “Demo 2005” which appeared at our pages back in these days… Well, this Ep I’m reviewing right now, sounds like a logic progression from this first demo, embracing a more atmospheric and incidental sound, but still maintaining the wintry obscurity present at the band’s earlier work. I still haven’t found an accurate generic label for Úden’s music; the minimalist Dark Ambient atmospheres mixed with some doomish auras and blackened vibe result in bleak and cold compositions where the strong, minimalist and ambient influence of Burzum present at the band’s previous release, seems to have considerably diminished in favour of a more personal and slightly varied proposal. While Úden’s demo 2005 showed a visceral and intuitive composition style, “Ciclo” shows a much carefully and refined sound; the accurate conjunction between aural keyboards ambiances, piano-like phantasmagorical cadences, dying, pulsating drumming and droning guitar riffs, creates unique atmospheres of simple, dense and nightmarish obscurity… Every single track this Cd-r contains seems to be covered by an enigmatic and disturbing veil, even the “brighter” moments of this work sounds like restrained by an invisible paranormal bond… just listen to the fifth track “Descansando en lo Inexorable”, one of the most beautiful composition of this work, at this track, even the subtle and oneiric splendour can’t escape from the impenetrable darkness, turning beauty into perturbation and serenity into insomnia… This work also contains two re-arranged tracks from Uden’s first demo; “Angustia 2006” shows the most rawer and droning side of Uden while “Resignacion 2006” sounds pretty much in the same vein of the band’s new composition style; atmospheric, obscure and incidental… a perfect outro for this interesting and potent work… “Ciclo” is a strong and coherent release, full of hypnotic obscurity and serious potential that will certainly delight everyone into the most ambient and minimalist side of obscure music.
